Rachel’s Challenge was developed to honor the life of Rachel Scott, the first person killed at Columbine High School on April 20, 1999. Her acts of kindness and compassion coupled with the contents of her six diaries have become the foundation for one of the most life-changing programs in America.
The mission of the program is to inspire, equip and empower every person to create a permanent positive culture change in their school, business and community by starting a chain reaction of kindness and compassion.
Rachel’s Challenge focuses on helping students recognize their purpose in life. Students will be issued five powerful challenges that are based on the writings and life of Rachel Joy Scott. By participating in Rachel’s Challenge activities, students learn to:
– Embrace and respect individual differences
– Appreciate the value and worth of every person
– Stand up for others that are being mistreated
– Know “who” they are and recognize their own worth
– Be kind and compassionate to people
– Reach out and help others
Please join our speaker presentation at 9:15 a.m. on Monday, October 24 held in the JSerra Pavilion.
